GLASS PROPHECY 

By Paul Burney 

William Billy, Chilocco's retired fortune teller, said that he had absolutely 
quit the business of telling fortunes, but after much bribing we bought him 
off and got him to accept the following terms in return for his services of 
revealing the future of the Senior Class. 

First, that we would give him three pet Charley horses with cushioned 
saddles to be furnished exclusively by Senior football players, also three yards 
of scrimmage line to keep them tied up with. 

Last, but not least, we must capture and tame two wild nightmares and 
furnish tailor-made harnesses for both of them. 

After having given William the required amount for his services he gazed 
into his crystal and revealed the most important events that will happen to 
each individual in the class. His crystal revealed these truths: 

Irene Baken — The man that marries this girl will have some wonderful 
meals in store for himself, but they will all be served at a delicatessen store. 

Irene Barnette — This young lady will start using flavored lipstick so 
as to give a new taste to an old pastime. 

Ethel Bohannan, our inventive nurse, will very soon discover that yeast 
makes a person rise earlier and loaf longer. 

Lillian Biggoose will get a little Austin for her next birthday, and 
while trying it out she will run into a steam roller. The end. 

Gus Alex will be a flat-foot; he will walk a beat at Erie, Oklahoma. 

Andy "Beets" Crittenden will more than once be mistaken for a stop 
sign while he is crossing the streets in New York City. 

Roy "Dad" Sampsel, our very inquisitive senior will meet his "doom" in 1936, 
when he tries to unwind a tornado to see what's making it go. 

Henry Ahdunko will reach his highest ambition — that is to be 5 feet tall. 

Roy Brown will drown himself trying to sleep on an ocean bed. 

Lucy Taylor will be so modern that she will not buy cottage cheese unless 
it has awnings furnished. 

Elizabeth Chandler will drown herself while skating on the lake — after she 
gets out in the middle she will find out there isn't any ice on it. 

Jonah Ratliff will be a foreign missionary and try to convert the heathen. 

Fred Jackson will be severely burned in a swimming race. He will swim 
so fast that the friction of the water will set his bathing suit on fire. 

Terrell Jackson will be informed by the Doctor that he needs more starch 
in his diet, so don't be surprised if you see him eating a collar or cuff. 

Dan Johnson, the invincible editor, will be crippled in the next Wall 
Street crash. (That is financially) 

Lola Lively will always know when her car is at the door because she will 
hear it knocking.

as long as possible. 

Brant Bracken is going to be pretty clever. It will take his wife two years 
to find out he's 56 instead of 28.

Paul Burney will some day be even greater than Lindbergh. He will 
have two sons instead of one. 

Christine Gassaway's unlucky days will be week days and Sundays. 

Joe "Butch" Ussery— It will take him five years to find out that playing 
a saxaphone by ear is the cause of his having the earache so often. 

Golela Crittenden will be so high class that she will not eat a hot dog 
unless it has a pedigree. 

Eliza West will invent some footless stockings so she won't have to darn 
the heels. 

Josephine Wolfe's husband will be an Elk, a Lion tamer, and a Moose 
and it won't cost anything to see him.

He will teach his students how to milk by shorthand. 

Antwine Wheeler's high school education will do him a lot of good. It will

the working class of people.

great, so she will jump off a building and die for her country. 

Adelia Hawkins is going to marry a man for his money so that there will 
always be one thing that she will like about him. 

Hattie Hawkins will always be liked by everyone. Even when she was 
in school the teacher put "kiss marks" all over her exam papers. 

Willa Mae Hunter will worship her husband so much that she will place 
burnt offerings in front of him three times a day. 

Gertrude Johnson is another young lady that will want to do something 
for her country. She will offer to pay any explorer's expenses that is going 
to Africa if he will take Al Jolson with him. 

Evageline Jones is another farmerette who is going to use her head. She 
will turn on the radio and that will eliminate the need of the scarecrow. 

Ruth McEwin whose head resembles Florence Nightingale's (on the out-

will not want anyone to mistake her for Little Boy Blue. 



GLASS WILL 



HMK^aB 





E THE SENIOR CLASS of 1931, knowing that we are about to 
depart from this scene of action, do hereby give and bequeath 
to our successors, certain possessions which have been our good 
fortune to accumulate during our sojourn here. 

First, as a class, we give and bequeath to the school as a 
whole our much used set of books from which by diligent study we have 
acquired all our knowledge; we bequeath also our initiative and pep so often 
displayed. 

To our much respected and beloved Superintendent, Mr. Correll, we be- 
queath a twig of for-get-me-nots, so that when employees are needed the 
Class of '31 may be remembered. 

To the Juniors we bequeath our dignity and surrender to you our privileges 
as Seniors, also the right to publish the Annual for next year. We are confi- 
dent that you can never produce an Annual superior to this, but with the Class 
of '31 as your model and by careful study you can produce a very fair Annual. 
To the present Sophomore Class: We extend to you the right to attend 
next year's Junior-Senior Prom., knowing that you felt slighted on account of 
not having that pleasure this year. 

To the present Freshman Class: We bequeath the right to discord that 
naturally verdant appearence which you have worn so long and patiently. Next 
year you will be a Sophomore Class and as we have learned from experience, 
by good hard study a few, if not all the subjects will soak in. In this way 
the denser outer green covering will probably peel off. 

To our much loved and cherished sponsor, Miss Felt, we will the assurance 
of a long remembrance of respect and appreciation for her untiring efforts in 
advising and piloting our class through the latter part of our Senior year. We 
also leave a sincere wish for her that the next Senior Classes will possess a 
part of our dignity, however, we feel that they could not surpass or even equal 
our many other qualities. 

To Mr. Heagy, Our principal and friend who has stood by us in time of 
trial and who has put forth his best efforts to make us capable young men and 
women, we wish a ripe and prosperous old age so that he may perhaps enjoy 
the fruits of his labor in the future accomplishments of the present Senior 
Class. 

To the Faculty: We wish to acknowledge our gratefulness for the in- 
terest and patience that you have shown in us and hope that it will not be in 
vain because we will try our best to make useful citizens of ourselves and 
hope we will make you proud of us.

FARM PLOT 




Walter Gray - Director of Agriculture 

Henry C. Hollowell Farm Plot Instructor 

HE FARM PLOT Plan, which has been in vogue here for the past 
seven years, was instituted by Mr. C. M. Blair who at the time 
was Superintendent of Chilocco. The details of the system were 
worked out by Mr. Lawrence Correll, who was then Director of Agri- 
culture. Under this plan a boy who wishes to major in Agriculture 
may lease from sixty to seventy acres of land from the school and work it as a 
tenant farmer. The student is furnished with necessary machinery, horses and 
tractor power, and seed to plant his small plot of ground. The boy cultivates 
his land under the direction of trained agriculturists and practical farmers, and 
in return for his work he receives one -fourth of what is harvested from the 
acreage. The monetary success of these student farms varies with crop condi- 
tions from year to year as is the case on any farm. 

The number of plots has increased from four to twenty. Each year there 
is a waiting list of boys who are anxious to adopt this practical method of learn- 
ing how to farm. 

In addition to the practical farming, students are taught the value of pure 
bred stock, pure seeds, the value of proper preparation of seed beds, the culti- 
vation of the soil, and all other necessary steps in the proper management of 
a farm. They are required under this system to plant half of their plot each year 
in wheat, one-fourth in oats, and one-fourth in corn or kaffir. When there is 
time, cow peas are worked in as a soil builder. 

During the winter months and on rainy days, these boys do all of the things 
that are necessary on a farm for sucess, such as repairing machinery, repairing 
and building fences, hauling manure to fertilize their plots, and helping to feed 
and care for the livestock. 

Practical farming is not the only branch of agriculture taught at Chilocco. 
For those boys who are interested in dairying, the school has a most up to date 
dairy. A herd of high quality dairy cows produces^ all of the dairy products 
used at the school. 

In the horticulture department, students are taught the methods of top 
and cleft grafting, budding, pruning for better fruit production, as well as the 
best methods of cultivation for different fruits. They are also taught to gather 
and care for the crops after harvest. 

The poultry department is maintained for the purpose of providing eggs and 
chickens for school use, and to give boys the practical training necessary to 
raise poultry successfully. 

About forty acres are planted in gardens each year for the purpose of pro- 
viding vegetables for school use. All seasonable vegetables are grown and many 
are stored and canned each year.

The New Laying House 




The New Calf Barn 




ANIMAL HUSBANDRY 




HILOCCO, being an agricultural school, has a well developed Ani- 
mal Husbandry Department wherein the Indian boys are taught 
how to raise and manage live-stock, both for food and for labor. 
Four years ago, Mr. Correll secured about one hundred and fifty 
head of sheep. These include the Shropshire and Hampshire breeds. 
They have been raised and cared for in the best possible manner for sheperds 
to give to these delicate animals. Their number has increased to two hundred 
and sixty-seven and out of this amount, there are two hundrd and fifty breed- 
ing ewes. 

The swine department is one of the school's most profitable enterprises. 
Here we find the Duroc-Jersey Breed. From three to five hundred hogs are 
fed during the school term. From this number there are fifty brood sows. The 
houses for these animals are well ventilated and are kept sanitary. Besides 
furnishing meat for the students, the school has sold quite a number of them 
during the past year. Forty acres of alfalfa pasture are allotted to these animaK 

Horses and mules are raised with considerable pride on the part of both 
boys and employees. The Percheons proved to be the most popular breed. At 
oresent. there are eighty-nine head of horses on the farm, and there is a barn 
large enough to accommodate them all. It has a concrete floor, electric lights, 
orooer ventilation and is modern in every detail. Chilocco boasts of "Gladune." 
a registered Percheron stallion, which is one of the best in his field of service 
throughout this oart of the state. 

From the seven hundred and thirv-five head of Hereford cattle grazing on 
two thousand, three hundred acres of pasture, we use three hundred and ninetv 
head for breeding nurooses onlv. These cattle are closelv guarded from all 
outside dangers. One or two bovs are detailed to ride over the range, lest some 
unfortunate steer mav be "bawled un" in a mud bole along the creek. During 
the winter months, when there is no pasture, corn fodder is fed to the oattle. 
Each steer is branded and thev are also treated in such a manner as to nrevent 
any disease that would be dangerous to the whole herd. 

We also have sixtv head of Holstein cows. The records show that for the 
month of February 1931. these cattle nroduced 41.740 pounds of milk with 5.000 
nounds of butter-fat. Alfalfa hav with a balanced ration, composed of oats. 
bran and cottonseed meal is fed to these cows. The boys are taught the pro- 
per way in which to keen records of each cow, the number nf nonnds of milk 
nroduced and the amount of feed consumed by each cow. The milk is tested 
every month thus protecting the health of the consumers. Out of the sixty 
head of milk cows there are thirty which are milked three times a day. Every 
new born calf is registered also. 

Chilocco boasts the largest and the most modern poultry department among 
the Indian Schools of the nation. For the egg laying type we have the Black 
and White Minorcas, the Ancornas, and the Mediterranean; for the meat snecies 
we raise the Light Brahmas and the Lang Shangs; and for the general purposes. 
we have the Rhode Island Reds, the Buffs and White Plymouths, and Barred 
Rocks. On an average, these produce five hundred eggs a day.

HOME ECONOMICS AT CHILOCCO 

Zella McCue Principal 

Lucille Lusk ----- Senior High Instructor 

Lora Mendenhall Junior High Instructor 

OME ECOMOMICS, one of the essential vocations for the girls of 
Chilocco, is taught from the seventh to the twelfth grade inclu- 
sively. Approximately four hundred girls are enrolled in this course. 
The girls are taught to cook and serve the foods and to make 
their own clothes. In the last two years of high school, the girls 
are permitted to choose whatever vocation they desire to follow. The majority 
of them specialize in Home Economics. 

Each grade has special requirements for the course. The eleventh grade 
is given instruction in interior decorating, home nursing, and household man- 
agement. The twelth grade girls specialize in advanced cookery and clothing. 
Other new courses offered to the twelth grade this year are Family Relation- 
ship, Child Training, and Home Millinery. These are equally divided into 
twelve week periods. Institutional cookery and sewing are also branches of Home 
Economics. 

In the Foods department, quantitative cooking, dietetics, and infant feeding 
are taught to the advanced grades. Dinners are prepared and served to the 
teachers. In the clothing department, the girls learn to design and make their 
own clothes and the Senior girls to make all their graduation clothing. The 
lower grades are taught to make simple garments such as children's clothes, 
household linens, and to renovate old clothing. 

The Home Economics Department consists of two foods laboratories and two 
clothing laboratories, one for the Junior High School classes and the other for 
the Senior High School classes. The foods laboratories each consist of five unit 
kitchens equipped for a unit of four girls and the work is planned and carried 
out on a family basis. 

Related activities that come under the supervision of the Home Economics 
advisors take place in the sewing room, the mending room, the school laundry, 
the dining room, the school kitchen and the bakery. Other vocations for the 
Senior girls of Chilocco include nursing and library science.

The Chilocco Home Economics Club, 1931 




PRACTICE COTTAGE 




Mrs. Pearl Colglazier Instructor 

N ADDITION to the Home Economics Poods and Clothing, the 
eleventh grade takes a course in household management at the 
practice cottage. In this course the class is divided into groups 
of six, each of which stays at the cottage for a period of six weeks. 
The work is arranged in such a manner as to allow each girl 
the advantage of the entire management of the house for one week. This 
management includes the planning of meals, the ordering of supplies, and the 
being responsible for the activities of the other members of the group. 

The new cottage which has been built only recently, includes fine rooms 
and a bath, and it contains all the modern conveniences of light, water and 
laundry. Much of the decoration and furnishing has been done by the eleventh 
and twelfth grades. In each group there are two housekeepers, a cook, an 
assistant cook, a laundress and a dairy maid. In connection with this cottage 
is a class room just a few steps from the cottage. Here, instructions are given 
to the tenth grade girls in Housewifery, Home Nursing, and Child Care, and in 
Interior Decorating for the Juniors. Here, too, the Seniors receive instructions 
in Family Relationship, Child Training, and Home Millinery. 



HOME ECONOMICS CLUB 




Advisors: Miss Zella McCue, Mrs. Pearl Colglazier, Miss Lucille Lusk, 

Miss Lora Mendenhall 

Officers: Irene Barnett, President; Elouise Steen, Vice President; Jane Riley, 

Secretary; Mrs. Pearl Colglazier, Treasurer; Oma Goer, Sgt.-at-Arms. 

N ADDITION to the various courses given in Home Economics, 
a club was organized several years ago. The club consists of girls 
in the eleventh and twelfth grades specializing in Home Economics. 
From the time of the first organization of the club to the present, 
names have been suggested, none however have been accepted by 
the club, although Ellen H. Richards Club has been favored, the name being that 
of the woman who founded the first Home Economics School. 

The main purpose of the club is to promote interest in the course and to 
inspire within the girls a better appreciation of its value. Aside from that, it also 
helps the girls to cultivate refinement. 

In years past, and this year also, as part of their service program, the 
girls have made Christmas presents as a part of the club work. 

While it is not compulsory for the girls to join the club, the membership 
does not vary to any great extent from year to year. There are thirty-six 
mempers this year and these girls derived much benefit from the club.

jv) HE OBJECT of the Trade Course at Chilocco is to train boys to be- 
come competent workmen, giving them a substantial, theoretical and 
practical knowledge of the work they wish to pursue after graduat- 
ing. The theoretical part of each trade is taught by a trained in- 
structor. His classes are small and this enables him to give much 




individual attention to his students. 

The printers have much practical work which enables them to learn the 
fundamentals of that trade. The Indian School Journal, the Senior Class Annual, 
the bulletins for the Washington Office, and the job-printing for various school 
activities constitute some of the work of this group. 

Students majoring in engineering learn the trade by working at the school 
power plant. They are responsible for the operation and up -keep of the heating 
and lighting systems and for pumping the water used on the campus from the 
deep wells. The ice supply used on the campus is also made at this plant. 

The general mechanics trade is subdivided into auto-mechanics, transporta- 
tion, tin-work, plumbing, and blacksmithing. Each division has definite insti- 
tutional work for which it is responsible and there is plenty of work on hand. 
The school has a number of cars, trucks, tractors, and other machinery that must 
be cared for. The plumbers look after the water supply after it leaves the water 
tower, and install and repair all plumbing fixtures on the campus. The black- 
smith shop is the general repair shop for all of the farm machinery belonging to 
the school. 

The masons do all the plastering, concrete work, stone masonry, and brick 
work needed on the campus. 

The construction department is kept very busy erecting new buildings and 
repairing the old ones., This work is directed by a skilled workman of many years 
experience. There is now under construction a girls' dormitory with a capacity 
for two hundred students which will be a most up-to-date building. 

Boys who select to study painting also get practical training. A coat of paint 
is constantly being applied to various buildings on the campus. 

The carpentry repair room is well equipped for that kind of work. Cabinet 
work and furniture repairing is done here. 

With a thousand students to wear out shoes, the shoemakers have no dif- 
ficulty in finding plenty to work on. Since much of the farm work is carried on 
by horse-power, a great deal of harness making and repairing is done at Chilocco.

HE CHILOCCO HOSPITAL was completed and opened for patients 
on November 24, 1926. The hospital is located on the east side of 
the lake with a western exposure. The past summer the hospital 
has been completely remodeled with more rooms, conveniences, 
up-to-date furnishings and new equipment. One of the convenient 
improvements is the new reception room on the south side which joins the 
clinic room from the outside and prevents confusion inside the building during 
clinic hours. Other improvements include the new operating room, drug room, 
a different heating and sewer system. The floors of the clinic, operating room, 
and drug room are finished with tiling. The bed capacity is fifty. There are 
two large wards, private rooms, a class room, physician's office, dentist's office, 
dispensary, nurses' quarters, a front reception room, and kitchen. 

With this well organized department Chilocco endeavors to guard with ut- 
most care the health of her students. A physicial examination is given to each 
student upon entrance and at intervals throughout the year. Special diets 
are prepared for underweight students, under the direction of the physician. At 
any time a student may go to the hospital for treatment. If his case warrants 
him to stay under the care of the physician and nurse he is carefully watched 
and properly cared for. Preventative measures are used whenever possible to 
safeguard the health of students. Many are vaccinated against small-pox each 
year and every student in school was innoculated against typhoid fever and 
diphtheria this past fall. 

A practical training course is given for student nurses from the Junior and 
Senior classes. The work includes practical care of the sick, ethics of hospital 
training, invalid cookery, bandaging,and dispensary work. This year there are 
five Seniors graduating from this course and five Juniors are taking the same 
course. 

Many of the Chilocco graduates who finish this nursing course have enter- 
ed hospital and completed their work in nursing. The Indian girl possesses 
those qualities which go far toward making a "perfect nurse." When such a girl 
is trained one may rest assured that she will endeavor to carry the message of 
healthful living to her people.

MUSIC AND AUDITORIUM AT GHILOGCO 




FACULTY 

Elizabeth Everly Auditorium 

Neita Davis Piano 

Peter A. Venne Band and Orchestra 

^jlHILOCCO has a music department where work compares favor- 
ably with that carried on by the music departments in the best 
public schools in Oklahoma. We have three department heads 
while most high schools have two and many only one. In the Band 
s=U and Orchestra department the students not only receive ensemble 
training but also individual instruction. This year a rhythm band was organ- 
ized for the students of primary age. This band is for the purpose of creating 
more pep on the football grounds. The orchestra which is composed of both 
boys and girls furnishes the music for the Saturday evening socials. 

The second department is the Auditorium department. This department has 
charge of all pageants, operettas, and red letter day programs; also the teaching 
of school songs, pep songs, school yells, hymnology study, the building of charac- 
ter, health, good manners, and good conduct. The auditorium classes also make 
exhibits to be sent over the country representing different kinds of work done at 
Chilocco. 

The third department is the Piano and Voice department. We have an up- 
to-date studio where individual instruction is given; also individual piano 
practice rooms where each student practices on a scheduled time. There are 
forty piano students, ten voice students and twenty two in each Glee Club — 
both the boys and girls — and thirty in the school choir. For the Christmas 
program this year the Glee Clubs presented a cantata entitled "His Natal Day." 
An Easter cantata, "The Thorn-Crowned King," was also given by the Glee 
Clubs. The Choir furnishes special anthems for the Sunday Church services. 

The informal piano and voice recitals which have been given this year for 
the first time have been very successful, since they provided valuable training 
for the student performers. Two musical programs have been given this year 
from the three departments combined. There have been several calls from 
broadcasting stations, churches, and music clubs to furnish programs, with 
which requests Chilocco has been glad to comply. In February a complete pro- 
gram was broadcast over station KCRC at Enid.

RHYTHM BAND 

HIS BAND is another organization which; has been established just 
this year. It has been trained by Mr. P. A. Venne, band director. 
The purpose of this band is to teach rhythm and appreciation of 
music to the younger children so they will be fitted for the work 
of the real orchestra later. This band has played for the smaller 
children's parties under the direction of Elouise Steen, Gus Aleck, and Violet 
Pickard, advanced orchestra members, who took turns in directing them. They 
were also assisted by Lena Tanitubbi and Etta Monroe, who play the piano. The 
following is a list of members of this band with the instrument which each plays. 
Thoses who play harmonica, are: Bill Tiger, Charley Eldridge, Howard Eld-

QUARTETTE 

HE SCHOOL QUARTETTE has this year consisted of four senior 
boys: Dave Quinton, first tenor; Antwine Wheeler, second tenor; 
Sam Hyder, first bass; and Andy Crittenden, second bass. These 
four boys have been together for two years and have made quite 
a history for themselves. In 1929-30 under the direction of Mrs. 
Speelman, they made many trips entertaining in various sorts of programs, con- 
ferences, and banquets. They were the school representatives to the state Hi-Y 
Conference at Stillwater, Oklahoma, in both 1930 and 1931. They have sung 
in many churches in Arkansas City, Kansas, Newkirk, and Blackwell, Oklahoma. 
In 1930 and '31 under the direction of Mrs. J. D. Davis, the quartette has 
done considerable work. Besides entertaining in churches in surrounding towns, 
they have broadcasted from station K-C-R-C at Enid, Oklahoma, in 1930 and 
'31 and also from W-B-B-Z station in Arkansas City. 

Antwine Wheeler and Sam Hyder have appeared as school soloists many 
times. Chilocco as well as the public at large have enjoyed the harmony pro- 
duced by these four voices.

Honor Graduates, 1931 






THE HONOR SOCIETY 



IT HAS LONG been a rule that "knowledge and high scholarship are to 
be had at a price." Because in each class there is a set of students who stand 
out among their fellow classmates, who have a high scholastic standing and 
clean personal record and who are active in the extra-curncular actmties 
carried on at Chilocco, the Honor Society was organized. 

This society was organized at Chilocco in the year 1927. It is one of the 
highest honors that Chilocco can bestow upon a student who has proved him- 
self or herself worthy of membership. 

To be a member of this society is the aim and ambition of every boy and 
girl from the ninth grade through the twelfth. 

The four students from the graduating class of 1931 who have attained 
standing both in academic work and extra-curricular activities, whose personal 
records are without blemish, and who were chosen by the faculty as members 
of this society are: Brant Bracken. Lola Lively, Elouise Steen and Fred 
Jackson, valedictorian.

ORGANIZATIONS 




HE HI — Y, Y. W. C. A. and Girl Reserve Organizations, sponsor and 
promote the moral, mental, physical, and spiritual development 
of the individual. Each one has been an active factor this year 
in the lives of many boys and girls of Chilocco. Their aim has 
been to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and 
community high standards of Christian character. 

They have been successful in that they have given many the chance to 
take an active part in the preparation and participation of activities that de- 
velop the individual. From the experience gained in such programs, Sunday 
evening meetings and social gatherings, and by the fellowship with other Chris- 
tian boys and girls of one's own school, an initiative and assurance are built 
up in the individual which better fits him or her to meet every-day problems 
in life. Take a clean standard in every-day living, in speech, in athletics, and 
in scholarship and you have a typical Hi-Y boy or Y. W. C. A. girl or 
Girl Reserve. 

After having been dormant since 1927, the Hi-Y spirit was again aroused 
last fall and as a result two clubs were formed. 

The Hi-Y is a club organization which sponsors and promotes the moral, 
physical, and spiritual development of the individual. It helps to create, main- 
tain and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christ- 
ian character. 

The Hi-Y club work at Chilocco has been successful in that it has given 
many of our boys the opportunity to take an active part in the preparation and 
participation of activities that develop the individual. From the experience gain- 
ed in such programs, Sunday evening meetings and social gatherings, and by the 
fellowship with other Christian boys of his own school, an initiative and as- 
surance are built up in the individual which better fits him to meet everyday 
problems in life. 

Take a clean standard in everyday living, in speech, in athletics, and in 
scholarship and you have a typical Hi-Y Christian fellow. 

Two other organizations which have thrived through of only one years dura- 
tion are the Girl and Boy Scouts. Each is divided into troops which are also 
divided into several patrols. Mr. Harry S. Keller, Head Advisor for boys at 
Chilocco, is Senior Scout Master and is in charge of all the boys troops. Troop 
One has for its Scout Master Mr. Rodman, and Mr. Sturgis and Mr. Lincoln 
are his assistants. Troop Two is sponsored by Mr. Keller with Nelson Rowe 
and Mr. Toinetta as assistants. Troop Three is headed by Mr. Waddell and 
assisted by Mr. Griffin and Carl Hollowell. The girls advisors are the Misses 
Jacobson, Lusk, Bartley, and Mrs. Robinson. 

Practically every boy and girl at Chilocco between the ages of twelve and 
sixteen belong to these organizations and all seem to be very much interested 
in learning the scout craft and other phases of scout work.

Chilocco Organizations In Arkalalah Parade 



GHILOGGO SCHOOL FLOAT 




HE FLOAT which represented Chilocco in the annual Arkansas 
City Arkalalah of October 31 was planned and prepared by the 
auditorium classes under the supervision of Miss Elizabeth Everly 
and Mrs. J. D. Davis. It was the second time that Chilocco has 
been represented in this annual event. Last year at this time 
the float was prepared in the same way, representing all the different kinds 
of training that the Indian boys and girls receive in the modern Indian schools. 
The float for this school year was planned to show the contrast of Indian 
education of "Today and Yesterday". A large truck decorated with the school 
colors, Red and White, carried an Indian tepee, near which sat an Indian Chief 
and small boys dressed in their native dress of blankets and war bonnets, de- 
corated with beads, bracelets and war paint. The Chief was giving instructions 
on how to shoot the bow and arrow, talking by his sign language. This repre- 
sented the education of Yesterday of the Indian Youth. On the opposite side of 
the truck the modern school room of Today was represented showing the Indian 
Youth being educated in the best modern schools. A boy representing "Uncle 
Sam" dressed in a costume of red, white, and blue as we often see him repre- 
sented in pictures stood between this tepee and the modern schoolroom, showing 
that it has been the work of the United States government which is responsible 
for this progress in the education of the Indian Youth of America. Two Indian 
girls in their bright costumes, representing the Indian girl of Yesterday, sat on 
the front of either side of the truck. The Chilocco Band and National Guards 
paraded ahead of the float. 

The past two years Chilocco has had an invitation to represent our 
school with a float in the annual Arkalalah which parades in Arkansas 
City the thirty -first of October. All of the neighboring towns are invited 
to take part in this event, each one presenting a float and the queen they 
elect for their town. 

According to the Arkansas City Traveler the Chilocco float was the 
most representative in the parade in 1929 and received the heartiest applause 
from the spectators along the street. The same compliments were paid 
our school for the float presented last fall, 1930. Many of the students were 
represented in the Chilocco float, band, and national guard company, and 
Chilocco appreciates the honor bestowed on our school in being invited to 
participate in this event.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION FOR iiOYS AND GIRLS 




N BOTH the boys' and girls' physical education departments, on three 
days of each week, every class devotes a period of fifty minutes to 
gymnastic work. Unless officially excused by the school physician 
each boy is required to report. There are two main purposes of an 
athletic department in addition to the enjoyment obtained by ex- 
ercise. These are to correct any physical deformities a student may have and 
to build up muscle, teaching the coordination of every part of the body so that 
all forms of exercise may be performed with the least expenditure of energy in 
the most graceful and efficient manner. If ailments are found that need medi- 
cal attention, the student is sent to the school hospital for special care. 

The work in the boys' Physical Education Department is supervised by Mr. 
Ray Colglazier. The boys' gymnasium is fitted with horizontal bars, flying rings, 
"horses", parallel bars, and tumbling mats. Also calisthenics, indoor, outdoor, 
games, and a few major sports are offered. Great enthusiasm is aroused by the 
interclass contests held each year in basketball and track. Great rivalry exists 
between the various classes and the competition is often quite "fierce." It often 
happens that through these games prospects for the varsity teams are first re- 
cognized and, with a little coaching, prospective students have proved to be out- 
standing athletes in later years. Through these games, as well as in all school 
contests, the students try to live up to the highest ideals in loyalty, good sport- 
manship, courtesy and cooperation which are all great factors in determining the 
success of each person in every day life. 

The interschool teams are composed of Junior College football, basketball, 
baseball and track. Chilocco is a member of a conference which includes the 
various Junior Colleges and Preparatory schools of the State of Oklahoma. 
Having competed in several tournaments, attended invitation meets, and having 
brought home trophies and other honors, we feel that Chilocco has a bright 
future and should gain even greater recognition throughout the country. 

The Girls' Physical Education work, under the direction of Miss Thelma 
Jacobson, has proved to be of great benefit to the girls of Chilocco. Every 
human being must be in action a considerable portion of his waking hours 
and it must either come through labor or exercise. In the girls' gymnasium, 
our girls exercise by means of calisthenics, wand drills, Indian club swinging, 
indoor games, flying rings, mats, and horizontal bars. Great pride is also taken 
in the girls' interclass basketball games and track meets which had their be- 
ginning only in recent years. The varsity girls' team has just finished its second 
season and it has gained wide publicity and an enviable reputation for the school. 

With the students doing their part in looking after their own physical 
bodies, the faculty interested in the welfare of all, and the school physician 
looking after the ailments of everyone, we feel that Chilocco is rendering a 
great service in the health campaign of the nation.
